    Probably not getting any sleep tonight. I was in bed, tired, ready to go to sleep. Then, my bladder was like "nah, get up!" -_- so now I'm fully awake again. Sigh.

    I don't know where to start this off,

    but I'll just first say that I can't do anything remarkable. I'm not special. I'm not good at anything. I'm just ordinary. I try so hard to change that, but nothing I do is good enough. I'm slowly starting to rethink all of this. I'm starting lose hope. I'm not seeing a...

    At 2am I went for a walk in the rain

    because I couldn't sleep and this creepy man came up to me and asked if I wanted candy. Did he think I was 8 or is he just that stupid? Of corse I'm not going to want ******* candy from a sketchy man in the dead of night. Bruh

    Urgh.. What's worse than staying up all

    night; is the fact that you struggle and fight just to fall asleep, only to toss and turn for the next 4/5 hours and wake up at the tiniest noise!! and then not being able to get back to sleep.... Hmm :/ stupid brain!!!!

    i like night. the dark.

    the quiet. the lack of human interaction. its when i am calmest... but there is also a darker side (see what i did there? darker? ok never mind) night is when i finally let myself think. this is not a good thing but i am not oblivious enough to deny the fact i am self...

    Why i don't know, i don't sleep

    when i try to go to bed early anyway. and there is no intimate reason to go to bed before my wife is asleep. But going to bed at 1 am to get up at 5:30 is going to catch up with me sooner or later but what the hell.

    I think it's just how i was born.

    I sleep the day away, and party all night through. Oh, and by party I mean sit in my bed, posting blogs, doing online shopping, watching netflix, and eating twice my body weight. Being a night owl is a privilege.

    why do they call it being a "night owl".

    .. why not a "night elephant" or "night snail"?

    It's tough being a night owl.

    Nobody to talk to, can't even go out to get something good to eat or watch a movie, just got to find ways to entertain myself. Some people think night owls are lazy just because we are not morning people. But I am very productive after midnight when most people are sleeping...

    There’s something special about the late

    nights. I can concentrate so much better after nightfall, opposed to during the day. It’s almost as if I’m at my most energetic during the final hours of the day. Which is a strange thing, as it should be the opposite. It’s as if my internal clock is set a few hours after...

    I stay up like every night

    until about 2:30 on netflix watching dr. Who and lots of anime. All this sleep deprivation really gives me more time to think and I feel more DEAD when I wake up
